    Google Maps Issue with My Location

    Anyone else having issues with the "My location" in Maps not being entirely accurate lately. Mine has been off by several blocks lately. Is this a software issue ?

    Mine has been over 75 miles off. It shows me in northern Arizona...when I live in southwest Phoenix...I use the weather portion of Beautiful Widgets and it shows snow...and it doesn't snow here...lol. I reported it on google's forums...which suck by the way...lol...so we'll see what kind of response I get. There are a LOT of issues on their pages.

    I am using the GPS...when I had the WiFi on...it only showed me a mile off. But with GPS...it shows me WAY off...I turned off Latitude...and that seems to be helping a little...seems a bit more accurate.

    I have the same problem. I tried with and without GPS and it's the same. it's off by few miles. Is this a software issue or the GPS issue?

    I had a problem yesterday where the GPS was off by 5-6 miles. I was also going south but it displayed as I was going east. I was on a road I have traveled down thousands of times so I knew the droid was wrong. I rebooted the droid and after it restarted it was exactly on right the remainder of the evening.
